Comment(by Otto42):

 I'm not sure what you're talking about.

 Firstly, I "look into the code" every single day, and I did a search on
 the code to see which pieces are LGPL before I responded to you in this
 thread at all. I probably know "the code" better than most people.

 Secondly, I reject your argument that a URL does not do the job. A
 reference to a thing can indeed take the place of a thing. That's what
 "reference" means.

 Third, a URL is not actually necessary. The LGPL is a well-known and
 commonly used license, so simply stating that that is the license by name
 is also perfectly acceptable. Even legally.

 Fourth, I have no idea what you're talking about with me not commenting on
 the TinyMCE editor. I thought that my previous post pointing out that it
 DOES have the license included there was my comment on it.

 In short, what in the hell are you talking about?
